Super fast read, important messages. Aimed squarely at Americans in this current political moment but plenty for the rest of us. Highly recommended.

Very good, lots to absorb. Made me question the size of my signature since it is an indicator of narcissism :) Ask "what" not "why". Good summary article here: http://lj.libraryjournal.com/2018/02/...

Can you believe that this not the end of canon Buffy? Me neither. I actually have to wait for Season 11! Crazy banana cakes! Should get volume one of S11 in a month or so and have to wait until end of Feb 2018 to get what is perhaps the final volume ...more
